April 4, 2023 There is a lot of hesitation out there about where interest rates are and the affordability that we have at this time. The good news is interest rates are at their lowest levels since last September, and they could be heading lower, but nothing drastic will happen quickly. In a meeting last week, we decided that Augusta Financial will do one free refinance for any clients that close a loan after 4/1/2023 through the end of 2023. That can happen this year, 2024, 2025, or beyond. We do feel that rates will continue to go down, but we don’t want our buyers to wait for interest rates to go down since we think prices will continue to rise. Therefore, we want to offer all our clients free refinances going forward. Let’s recap, 12-day escrows with one weekend, 14-day escrows with two weekends, free refinance, Bridge Loans, and every other type of loan available, including non-warrantable condos, outstanding knowledge, and excellent service. Rates were better the past few days, and I like where we are going. Let’s hope we continue the momentum and rates get lower so sellers feel like they can sell!
